Category: Pilsner

Date Tasted:

Minutely hazy light gold color. Interesting aromas and flavors of lemon chiffon on melon, clay, crayon, and sport pepper and saltines with a satiny, crisp, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long peppered greens, dried grilled ciabatta, and lemon sorbet finish. A citrusy summertime Pilsner.

Pilsner

Serve in a Pilsner Glass
Pilsners are pale to golden straw in color and range in alcohol from 4.5-6%. The hallmark of a fresh pilsner is a dense, white head. The alcohol levels must be such as to give a rounded mouthfeel. These beers are medium-bodied and are characterized by high carbonation and tangy Czech and German varieties of hops that impart floral aromas and a crisp, bitter finish. This style originated in Bohemia in the Czech Republic. German pilsner styles are similar, though often slightly lighter in body and color. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Pilsner Urquell, Paulaner Premium Pils, Brooklyn Brewery Brooklyn Pilsner and Victory Prima Pils.
